He’s also given another $90,000 to help 10 different schools within the CPS System this month.
Inspired by his selflessness, a Chicago bakery has joined in on the fundraising. Alliance Bakery in Wicker Park, Chicago has decided to create a series of Chance the Rapper-inspired cookies that will raise money for the CPS system.
The proceeds from each cookie sold will go to Chance the Rapper's non-profit organization, SocialWorks. Additionally, the bakery will match the first $5,000 to guarantee a total of $10,000 going back to the Chicago Public School system.
The cookies feature Chance the Rapper’s silhouette and his signature “3” hat.
“I love the idea. I’m a product of Chicago Public Schools and my son is in a public school and, yeah, they need help,” says Peter Rios, Alliance Bakery owner.
